The upright is a rough schist slab with a rounded top, now leaning slightly towards the south west, which measures 1.20 m by 0.35 m at the base and 1.9 m in height.
The fallen stone, a hard sandstone, was said to have been standing about 1910. It lies 12 m to the south east. It measures 2.4 m in length by 0.7 m at its widest and only its upper surface is exposed. It is inscribed with a circle, 0.6 m in diameter with a central indentation, which appear to have been made in comparatively recent times, perhaps a failed attempt to cut a quern-stone.
